Hey
I was wondering if anyone knew of a cheaper running watch to measure distance other than a Garmin which are quite pricey.
I can see watches for measuring laps but I want a pedometer style watch and I don't think a lap timer would be suitable.
As a novice I would be glad of some assistance.

Thanks, Han

I have a Polar RS200. Measures time, distance, laps, pace and HR. Not bargain-basement but not a bad bit of kit (came with HR belt and pedometer that clips onto my shoe.

Or you could get an old Garmin off Ebay...

I use Map My Run on the iPhone. Well. I do when the phone's not broken.

I have a rubbish BlackBerry so no smart apps for me!

Got something to say?
